After Aqaba, I headed to Wadi Dana in search of spectacular mountains and a little more greenery. Dana did not disappoint, and it was unlike anything I’ve seen. If you’re looking for day hikes you can do on your own in Jordan, you definitely have to check this out.
Petra, the Nabatean city carved in stone, frozen in time for almost two thousand years before being rediscovered.

Read on to find out how you can spend 2 amazing days in the lost city of Petra.
Looking for something new beyond the usual stroll around Marina Bay? How about checking out this other side of Singapore, not far from the city center, far less crowded, and full of interesting sights? Here’s a guide to spending a day (or 2) in the south western part of Singapore (without going to Sentosa).
One of my favorite places on earth, the Kungsleden, in Swedish Lapland, will be open for summer hiking from June to September this year. I spent a week on the trail and surrounding areas last September and loved (almost) every single bit of it. So just before the huts and related facilities start running again, I thought it’ll be timely to compile some resources that you might find helpful if you intend to explore this otherworldly arctic landscape.
The last of my week long hike in Swedish Lapland, and the second part of my adventure on the Kungsleden. Amazing panoramas, stunning lakes and reindeer herds in late summer/ early autumn.
Hiking the beautiful Kungsleden (King’s Trail) in northern Sweden, from Kebnekaise (from Nikkaluokta) to Abisko. A journey across dramatic mountain passes, vast open valleys and elegant lakes in the Arctic Circle in early autumn.
Somewhere in Swedish Lapland, nestled among mountains and glaciers, lies the mysterious Tarfala Valley. The dramatic, dreamlike landscape, will forever be etched in my mind.
Hiking (almost) solo in the Arctic Circle from Nikkaluokta to Kebnekaise, tallest mountain in Sweden, in late summer. A few bad decisions, a few good ones, a sufficient recipe for an adventure across deep grassy valleys and towering snow capped peaks.
Thought I’d take a self-guided visit to Lake Baikal since I had stopped by Irkutsk, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions on the trip.
Trekking to Yubeng, the village hidden within the mountains at the Yunnan, Tibetan border. 4 days across snow-capped peaks, deep valleys, alpine forests, secluded lakes and waterfalls in buses, 4wds, and on foot.
